The Benefits of Being Bilingual or Multilingual

“Being bilingual definitively makes life easier. You get two languages for one,” says Corina, a Cypriot-Swedish girl who grew up with Greek, English and Swedish. And when I ask Xavier, who is Belgian-Spanish, whether it is an advantage or a disadvantage to be raised with multiple languages, he hardly takes my question seriously – of course it’s beneficial!

Read about the different brain of a bilingual from TEDxAmsterdam.

Below, watch Patricia Ryan, a longtime English teacher, ask a provocative question: Is the world's focus on English preventing the spread of great ideas in other languages? In other words: What if Einstein had to pass the TOEFL? It's a passionate defense of translating and sharing ideas.
